    DS DoubleSys iPhone/iPod Touch app disappears

    Remember when I showed you guys the 'DS DoubleSys' app, an iPhone/iPod Touch application that mimicked the DS exactly? Well, if you missed the trailaer the first time around, it looks like you're out of luck. Not only has the trailer been yanked from YouTube, but the app itself is gone from the App Store. Looks like Nintendo caught wind of this product, and you can bet that they're going to file for damages.

    Looks...really stupid. Why the hell would you want to play a fake DS on your iPhone? Why not just make it an original app that doesn't have to blatantly break copyrights like this?

    Eh...it's no wonder Nintendo asked them to pull this. It's sound and look is copied probably 90% from the actual DS.

    Not knowing the difference between simulator and emulator is just amusing as hell.

    That said, it's a stupid app and nintendo deserved the right to pull it especially since they plastered Nintendo and DS names all over it... stupid people would think it an official app.
